Harper the gatecrasher!

Welcome to my 5th Vlog of 2016! This week it took a little longer than expected as I had to do so many takes and at one point my video was gate-crashed by my sisters cat, Harper! Sadly she didn’t make the final cut but I’m sure she will be in future videos because the camera loves her!

I am getting better at planning my Vlogs and the positive feedback is really keeping me going when I feel like I’m not doing such a great job!

I keep getting lots of ideas about how I can make my Vlogs better but I am open to suggestion so please let me know if you have any suggestions for me or if there is a particular subject you would like covered. I have  lots of ideas myself, I just need to get things started really!

I have lots of plans for my videos so watch this space – I’m hoping to get them looking and sounding a little more professional soon. So this week’s video blog was a little improvised, even though I did quite a lot of preparation my notes weren’t up to the grade!  A lesson learned for next time.

Enjoy!

Hi everyone, Happy Full Moon in Leo!
Second time lucky – that ol’ trickster Mercury has had me well and truly running round in circles this week. My first Vlog went wrong and I’ve had a few issues uploading and posting my second attempt – but here it is, finally.
Enjoy! X

Harvest Full Moon Rise

On 24 January 2016 there is a Full Moon at 01:45 GMT at 03°29′ Leo. This Full Moon in Leo occurs in the early hours of the morning in the UK, on the same day Mercury slows down to station at 14° Capricorn just before 9pm GMT.

Just 3 minutes before the Full Moon reaches perfection, Mars (at 10°56′ Scorpio) rises over the Eastern horizon lending particular potency to the intensity of the ascendant, whilst making a hard aspect to the Full Moon. Though slightly wide, when the luminaries are involved a wider orb of 10° is accepted.

This is a dynamic configuration which challenges the temperament of the Moon in Leo and exacerbates the less favorable qualities of this Lunar placement. This Moon already wants to be the best and with the competitive presence of Mars there could be some serious hustle and dramatic outbursts.

Mars is being called into action by the Full Moon – Mercury Retrograde has already triggered a wake-up call and started to articulate some of our deepest secrets. However, with Mercury making a harmonious aspect to Mars, channeling anger and heated words into productive action and quick thinking is possible, and there may be an opportunity to rationalise this rather explosive planetary combination. Mercury in Capricorn is very serious and measured so any irrational and subjective behavior being kicked out from the Leo Full Moon and Mars will be dampened by Mercury the trickster, who is too smart to have the wool pulled over his eyes.

Dynamic and Volcanic

A release of some kind is inevitable with Mars and as he is in Scorpio, letting go is part of the process too. With both Mercury and Pluto making a harmonic aspect to Mars, this could be the grand unveiling of the deep dark secrets buried within the murky depths of the sea goat’s sturdy and reliable mountain.

A volcanic eruption ensues; the tension of the Sun-Moon opposition acting as the catalyst. Rumbling from the core of the Earth, the fertile landscape which once existed reduced to rubble where the secrets of the underworld  for all to see. The Moon make a harmonious aspect to Saturn from about 05:30 GMT on, later making a super-harmonious aspect with Uranus, too. This really anchors the situation back to reality to have a serious look at what has occurred and make sense from an emotionally detached/third person perspective. It is time to take responsibility for any part in these events so one can discard the old ideals that weren’t working from the rubble and begin to build a new vision from the dust.

The Full Moon and You

Aries
Being a leader is tiring for you at the moment, when all you want to do is connect with your inner child and playful creative self. Escaping from it all (preferably a holiday) is the perfect remedy for your need for change and excitement. Challenges may present themselves from the bank balance – It’s fine to dip into the pot and enjoy yourself – just be prepared for the repayments and make sure you don’t end up owing too much!

Taurus
There is no equilibrium between work and home life at the moment and as a result your relationships may be suffering. Working and living in close proximity with others may cause tensions to run high. Perhaps this as an opportunity to take up running or squash with a partner to expend that excess energy. Try to exercise some temperance between work and home and make time to pamper yourself with a massage or a long soak in the bath.

Venus Rx

Venus has reached a point in her cycle where she continues to move forward in her orbit around the Sun but approaches her closest orbital point to Earth.  This period is known as ‘retrograde’ and during this time, appears to move backwards in the sky.  During her cycle around the sun, Venus moves approximately one degree a day, with the retrograde period lasting about 6 weeks (no more than 43 days at a time).  Some years she doesn’t retrograde at all.  During retrograde, Venus’ presence is more pronounced in our daily lives. Particularly highlighted during this period are the things that we attract or consider to be of value to us, be it particular relationships (romantic and professional), moral standpoints, objects and possessions, our source of income and creative endeavors ranging from aesthetics and art to and children.

In 2015, Venus Stations on 25th July 10:29 GMT at 00°45’ Virgo and continues in retrograde motion through until the 05th September at 14­°24’ where she Stations before commencing in direct motion from the 07th September.   With Saturn in Scorpio squaring Venus conjunct Jupiter, finances may be highlighted and depending on your luck a refund may be requested from, or credited to your account during this period (preferably the latter).

The phrase ‘It is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind’ epitomises Venus’ temperament in her backwards motion and inclusive of relationship commitments (both romantic and professional), issues of abode and a re-evaluation of what it is you feel is of Value to you. Venus retrograde is not to be feared as this period is always an excellent opportunity for self-observation and the potential to considered from a closer and more personal perspective.
